Looks like Rodney Atkins can breathe easy…unlike his wife (allegedly).

The country star struck a deal with Tennessee prosecutors after he was arrested in November when his then wife, Tammy Atkins, claimed he tried to smother her to death with a pillow.

Really?!

Atkins claims he's innocent and agreed to 30 hours of community service and a year probation after he already completed anger management courses and drug/alcohol evaluations.

Atkins said the following in a statement:

I am so thankful for all those that chose to withhold judgment while keeping my family and I in their prayers. God Bless. Onward and upward.

Who tries to smother someone in real life?!
